1:00 am
>> i own apartments in las vegas, i'm not making money. there's a lot of risk. >> i have a line for you. liberals too damn selfish to still innocent people's money. >> i got to go. the last word. >> greta with whoopie goldberg next. >> greta: one and only whoopie goldberg goes on the report about hers dust up with bill o'reilly on "the view." >> muslims killed us on 9-11. >> no! oh, my god! >> muslims didn't kill us on 9-11? is that what you're saying? >> excuse me. extremists. >> extremists. 70% of this country -- >> i don't want to sit here. >> go. >> you're outraged about muslims killing us on 9-11. >> greta: whoopie is here, minutes away.
1:01 am
but first, listen to this. here is a tip, these congressmen are both democrats. >> pelosi was never my choice for speaker. (booing). >> and the reality is that she was going to be the speaker. in this instance, i think there will be enough conservative democrats to assure that she will not be the speaker. >> she's probably not going to be speaker again. and if she does, i'm confident she will have opposition and i look forward to supporting that opposition. >> greta: ouch. a lot of democrats are running way way from pelosi and president obama. dana perino joins us later. these democrats running away from the speaker, alabama, jim marshall, georgia. the list goes on. >> it's not unusual when you're leader that eventually you will become polarizing and then the
1:02 am
target of -- you're usually the target of ire from the opposite party. there is a saying that you want their team divided, not yours. and today in the daily caller, your next guest will maybe expand on it, they called 50 conservative democrats and found that only one would voice support for speaker pelosi to be reelected as speaker. that's saying something. >> greta: that in order to get sort of a pass at this point so that they can win the election and remain the majority party? think speaker pelosi has given them a pass? >> she is. she has an ability like -- politicians at that level have to be able to separate the personal from the politics and she has said, i want democrats to win. they should do what they need to do. in some cases, that's going to mean running as against her. in this election cycle, if you see president obama in an ad, it's not probably going to be a
1:03 am
democrat's ad. it will be an ad that a republican is running because president obama is exceedingly unpopular in a lot of different districts. >> greta: you're a real coward and a real rat if you're a democrat and you're running away from speaker pelosi right now and if you voted for health care >> then they're all rats. >> greta: if you embrace the democratic agenda that offended a lot of the american people, which is health care, if you voted for it, if you went on the party team and suddenly now you're getting scared for your own hide and all of a sudden you come out against speaker pelosi and you even run ads saying, i'm not the one. >> i have thought that from the beginning that they passed congressional pieces of legislation, it seemed to be ones people didn't want and they were offended by the process by which it was -- >> greta: not the democrats? >> no, i mean people, the folks in america are offended. >> greta: you mean that they didn't read it? >> and also the fake olive
1:04 am
branch to republicans to try to get them to apartment when they weren't allowed to offer amendments or anything. at the end of the day, what happens is you have to in some ways compare this to 1994. so i asked somebody that isn't more of a historian than i am and i said, how does this compare to 1994? he said to his recollection, he doesn't remember any democrat calling for speaker foley at the time not to be speaker again. >> greta: she's an easy target. but if you think about it, within the democratic party, of course republicans don't like her. but within the democratic party, she has achieved, i think, what very few could achieve. she managed to herd the cats and get a very quick vote on health care, whether you like health care or not, she managed to do that. senator harry reid, good night over in the senate, he wasn't able to do that. he wasn't -- >> she was able to get -- twist enough arms and get them to vote for cap and trade and the senate wouldn't pick it up and it was ten senate democrats that killed cap and trade on that
1:05 am
side of the hill. she's a very accomplished woman. they would not have had the majorities in 2006 and 2008 and she's helped president obama get elected in 2008 without her. >> greta: is it fair to say then -- i know you don't agree with her and i know you're not a democrat. is it fair to say she's done a good job for her party? >> absolutely. she's extremely effective speaker. that's why it's sad for her. but then again, i would probably be more personally hurt by it. i think she's got a very thick skin and she understands what politics is. i'm sure she wants to remain speaker and be able to see through the agenda. but i have a feeling she might be deciding she's going to spend more quality time with her family after the election. >> greta: why isn't senator harry reid getting that kind of criticism? >> maybe because he wasn't as effective. >> greta: i don't know. >> a lot of those conservative democrats felt they were bullied into it, both to me -- you voted for it.
1:06 am
and to blame her now does seem unreasonable. i think that's why a lot of people are going to -- that's why a lot of them are going to lose on november 3. >> greta: congressman meek was on last night, running in florida for the senate and he had bill clinton campaign for him. he didn't have president obama campaign for him. and he's running as far away as he can from his own party. he's trying to navigate dangerous waters politically, strategically. but imagine having to run from your own president. >> very tough strategy. president clinton moderated the party. he brought them back from the left more into the center. what america has experienced is a president who was more to the left and the house and the senate that was more to the left and america was shocked into action and that's when you saw the rise of the tea party movement and lots of new candidates and now we're probably going to have a wave election in 13 days. >> greta: 13 days. we're getting right down to the home stretch. a lot can happen. a lot of predictions can turn out to be wrong. thank you. >> thank you.
1:07 am
>> greta: if you think voters had it up to here, well, listen to this. there was a cat calling adjourn last night, duluth tribune describing it as angry mobs attacking a candidate in a debate. watch this. >> colossal mountain of debt created by the previous administration. (booing) i gather they don't like to hear the truth. 87 million of us are going to lose our coverage in the upcoming months. that is a fact. (booing) we have the best health care in the world and we're going to make it better with this system. it is not going to -- (booing) that is a phony argument cooked up by the heritage foundation and they're dead wrong. >> greta: minnesota is not alone. there are a lot of really furious voters out there. what does it mean for november, had 13 days from now? joining us is tucker carlson. i'm going to talk to you about what dana was talking about in
1:08 am
terms of the democrats. first, what's going on in some of the campaign, wow. >> this is like a common day like people in the parliament of china. >> i love that video. >> this is restrained by international standards. this is an amazing and instructive race because it's so clear. the incumbent, longest serving congressman -- 1974. >> longest in the state's history, is very clear, he's not running away from speaker pelosi. he's saying i voted for this, i'm for obamacare, flat out and his opponent, the republican, says, i'm against it. voters have the clearest possible choice in this race. they're amped up, democracy is not always pretty, but no one is getting violent. >> greta: it's interesting, i always think of the senator of minnesota, they may disagree, but i don't usually think of them as getting all that fired up and rude. >> lots of people named carlson. scandinavian. >> greta: but i mean, it
1:09 am
surprised me that -- whether you're for or against him, he has had the state since 1974. i'm surprised that that's how heated people are. >> this is one of these year when people are casting off the old assumptions. this will be in ways that we can not perceive now in historical election, not to speak as one party regains control of this or that chamber, but because we're going to tart looking at a fresh set of problems in a brand-new way. i think this a big deal election. >> greta: look at summer of 2009. remember the tone hall meetings when they went home? they were screaming and hooting and hollering and putting their politicians up there and asking them hard questions. in some ways the fire of debate, this has been going on -- >> it has been going on. let's not forget. this is not about despising the president. the president's personally unpopular with a lot of republicans. but it's not about that. it's about his policies and in particular it's about the health care law and the democrats knew going back, as you said to last
1:10 am
summer, that it was gravely unpopular, among a lot of voters and they ignored it and pushed it through with fewer than 50% of americans saying they supported it and made it law. biggest law of my life. >> greta: dana mentioned that your web site, daily caller, made a lot of calls. >> yeah. john warner, got in touch with 50 blue dog democrats and said, are you supporting pelosi? 49 said on the record, no way. >> greta: no way? they didn't even try to dodge it? >> no, they were very direct about it. i have to say, to the extent that these people supports the pelosi agenda and most of them by the way, did, blue dog or not, they voted for the obama agenda and now they're running away from it. >> greta: that's the rats and the cowardly thing. as dana said, whether you're for the health care or not, the fact is that she did what people thought she couldn't do and these democrats voted for the health care and now they find out low and behold, their
1:11 am
constituents don't like it, they're blaming it on the speaker. >> i believe the obama package hurts this country. i'm not favoring it in any way. i agree with you completely. man up. if you supported this, look in the camera like congressman overstar and say yes, i did support it and face your consequence. take the lumps. thank you, may i have another? >> greta: if the democrats retain the majority and she remains speaker, we'll see what heads roll. all the cowards. these 50 cowards. >> if she remains speaker, there are a lot of people who will resign their seats because they won't want to deal with her. >> greta: that's not true. if she retains it, i think they'll be cowering in fear. didn't someone else say they were going to move? >> no. i'm american. >> greta: i'm teasing you. >> it will be shocking if the democrats retain the house. i will probably go sell insurance or change my business because i'm not good at what i do. if you can't call this election correctly, you should do something else. alaska, senator murkowski winning as a write in over
1:12 am
miller. >> you actually know that state a lot better than i do. so i'm not going to disagree. >> greta: it's a guess. >> i'm going to steal your guess and pass it off as my own. >> greta: she has the endorsement of senator stevens who died, but who is a god in that state and remains a god in that state. they have a new ad where he's endorsing her. he did it obviously before he died. and his daughters also supporting senator murkowski and mr. miller has not made a lot of friends. >> it's remarkable, if she won as a write in. of course, she was -- >> greta: she's running as a republican. >> i'm not even going to speculate what that would mean. >> greta: she's running as a republican 'cause i said the other night incorrectly she's running as an independent. she's running as a write in. 13 days, a lot can happen. thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: next, remember this number, it's 700,000. that number could change what you think about illegal immigration. why? stick around. whoopie goldberg is right here.

>> greta: no secret, the country is fighting big time about illegal immigration. but in the midst of the verbal
1:16 am
slug fest, it's easy to forget about another group of people, legal immigrants who go through the process the right way and become u.s. citizens. now the report from grif jenkins. >> nice to meet you. good morning. >> last year more than 700,000 immigrants became naturalized united states citizens. their journeys were long, the processes difficult. they ended it in a field office here in the u.s. cis program, they're more than 80 across the country. we followed a few of their stories as they took the oath of allegiance. >> i hereby declare on oath. >> i here by declare on oath. >> all allegiance and fidelity. >> all allegiance and fidelity. >> it's an extraordinary privilege that we extend to people from all over the world. it carries special rights and it also carries with it special responsibilities. >> immigrants contribute so much to the fabric of our society.
1:17 am
they contribute so much to what the rights of freedom and democracy mean and what it means to carry out the responsibilities of being in our beloved country. >> it's a computer consultant who came to the united states from india in 1999. educated in pennsylvania, he received his green card in 2005. today he is married to a woman from india who is here on a student visa and the couple are expecting their first child any time. >> we elect u.s. representative for how many years? #. >> for two years. >> what month do we vote for president? >> november. >> it's a very exciting opportunity to become a citizen. so first thing i would say is that you want to feel excited and positive when you decide you want to become a citizen of america. >> this is a cashier from el salvador who came to the u.s. 16 years ago. she received her green card through family members who have
1:18 am
already become naturalized citizens. >> what did the delicious of independence do? today is a special day not only for herself, but also for her 17-year-old daughter, not born in the u.s., but who will derive citizenship automatically if berta can pass her final test. >> congratulations on your application. >> as soon as i get out from the ceremony here, i got to go to post office and get her passport and mine together. >> let me be the first to congratulate you as u.s. citizens. congratulations. [ applause ] >> what do you think? how does it feel? >> this is a great journey and, you know, i think this is an exciting feeling and taking an oath and getting the certificate is really an amazing journey that in a way kind of is an end and also a beginning of u.s. citizen.
1:19 am
>> the american dream never dies, even in old age. this woman became a u.s. citizen just recently in texas at the ripe old age of 101 years old. >> greta: next, a twist to another red hot issue. here it is. should babies of illegal immigrants continue to get automatic citizenship? don't answer yet. that's coming up. stay tuned. and bill o'reilly made "the view" whoopie goldberg so mad she walked off her own set. whoopie goldberg is here and has more to say about bill o'reilly. whoopie goldberg "on the record." rent is too high, might have is a scandal. guess what he pays for rent? guess what he pays for rent? stay tuned.

1:22 am
>> greta: controversy exploding recently when some republicans said americans should repeal or change the 14th amendment so babies of illegal immigrants do not get automatic american citizenship. our next guest agrees that illegal immigrant babies should not get citizenship. but his idea is different. state representative metcalf joins us live. good evening, and what is your idea and why? >> good evening. i've joined with colleagues
1:23 am
across the country, senator pierce, state senator in arizona, and other state legislators across the country under the banner of state legislators for legal immigration.com, which is a coalition of state legislatorses that we've created to stand together, to end the economic incentives that draw illegal aliens into our country and certainly the greatest incentive for an illegal alien to invade the united states is to have a child on american soil and then claim american citizenship for that child and use that child as a conduit to gain access to jobs and benefits in america. we are forming a committee through state legislators for legal immigration.com to bring state legislators together, to look at the 14th amendment and come up with language that we can introduce legislatively at the state level to deal with the misapplication of the 14th amendment because the 14th amendment during the debates when it was adopted, when it was drafted, when it was ratified by the states, was understood to be applied to those individuals who were born
1:24 am
on our soil, but whose parents also had an allegiance to our nation. it was not to be applied to ambassadors. it was not to be applied at that time to the indian tribes that had their own nations. this was not to be applied to foreign nationals who were in our country. now we have a situation where illegal aliens are coming into our country, having children on our soil and claiming citizenship for those children. >> greta: all right. so just so i understand it, so you're not seeking to amend the constitution. there are two ways to amend the constitution. but extraordinary difficult. what your argument is is that you think that everyone for the last decade have been looking at the constitution the wrong way. that's what you and your colleagues believe? >> i think it's very clear. it's not even refutable when you look at the actual debates that the senators who debated this, the u.s. house members who debated this declared in the debate that what they were doing with the 14th amendment was setting up a situation where just being born on our soil was not the only criteria to grant
1:25 am
you citizenship. that your parents who were having you here had to have an allegiance, had to be under the jurisdiction therefore, is the wording used in statute. >> greta: all right. sort of interesting. the list that apparently is that you have colleagues from pennsylvania, arizona, nebraska, alabama, delaware, idaho, indiana, michigan, mississippi, montana, new hampshire, oklahoma, texas and utah. you've got a number of states. 14 states. it doesn't mean you'll get 14 states to act on something, but it's not like -- have you actually met with these other representatives? how far along is this? >> we have been working together, many of us, for the last 3 1/2 years since we were formed. we have legislators involved. lead legislators in 41 states now. this press conference we held yesterday, press released on this specific program, this specific project we're all participating in, we're about 14 states. but we're moving forward to
1:26 am
craft legislation over the next couple of months and hopefully as people come back into legislative session early next year. we'll have it developed that can be introduced. >> greta: we only got 30 seconds. let's say someone is born here, parents illegal and the person is 120 years old, spent 20 years of his life here, what do you do with that person? >> i think it's very clear from the way the constitution was drafted. the constitution is the law of the land. i think it should be upheld and defended as a soldier -- >> greta: you would throw that person out? >> we have to uphold and defend the constitution. that person would be a citizen of the nation their parents are from and they would have to go back to their home! reapply for citizenship. >> thank you. it's a story we're going to follow. a lot to talk about. thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: you've been waiting for, she's here. whoopie goldberg goes on the record about the dustup with bill o'reilly and so much more. stay tuned for whoopie and the wildest video of the week.

swanson 100% natural chicken broth. i'd get this tightness in my chest. so i went back to my doctor again. we chose symbicort to help control my asthma symptoms all day and night. [ man ] symbicort improves my lung function, starting within 15 mutes. symbict will not replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. it is a combination of two medicines and should not be taken more often than prescribed. symbicort contains formoterol. medicines like formoterol increase the risk of death from asthma problems, and children and adolescents mahave an increased risk of being hospitalized for asthma problems. symbicort is not for people whose asthma is well controlled with a long-term asthma control medicin like inhaled corticosteroids. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop symbicort without loss of control, and prescribe a long-term asthma control medicine. be sure to see your doctor if yoursthma does not improve or gets worse. symbicort is a good choice to help control my asthma all day and night.

1:31 am
has become. i can ask you anything, anywhere, any time. the last person to do that said, what are you doing in here? i said, i had to go to the bathroom. i said, well, that's what i'm doing here. so let me finish and then i'll come out. but, you know, i can't do this and you. so she sort of backed down. i know that's you next to me. can you sign this? wow. >> greta: yeah. as i say, we're lucky to have jobs, but it's like when you see the one eye peering in at you in the crack at the stall asking for an autograph, it's a little over the top. >> it's not just the stalls. al roker, i was talking to him, he said i can't believe -- this happened to me, too, in the urinal. people just -- i guess it's because they're not thinking or they think you're going to get away from them. but, you know. come on, the bathroom. >> greta: all right.
1:32 am
the book is about manners. one of the sort of lost -- >> i don't know if people don't have any manners, we're just not in the habit. as i said in the book, i'm the same way. there are times when i forget my manners, but i think i realize that, so then i try for the next time. so i think that's what really, it's just a reminder of stuff that we can do to make it better, just a little bit. >> greta: in terms of manners, even things we often forget about, take something like perfume. we talked about perfume in there. >> yeah. >> greta: you smile. >> it's a huge thing to me. you know, when i was little, someone gave me as like my 12th birthday, a small bottle of chanel number 5. >> greta: that's what my grandmother wore. >> yeah. so my mother said, i'm going to show you how to put this on.
1:33 am
on the finger, and she said, you put it on the pulse here and under here where the pulse is and if you're feeling particularly good, you get a little over here. people don't seem to realize that it's not like you're not a salad. people seem to put, like, perfume on like this, like they're, you know, greens in a dish. and you come and your eyes are bleeding. you're on an elevator with them. did nobody tell you that you had on too much scent? i mean, and guys do it, girls do it. it's just terrible. >> greta: we talk about boundaries in the book, but you get a lot of that in closed space, like airplanes. you go into a hotel and they get really heavy handed with that carpet cleaner and to the point where your food tastes like it. >> yeah. you're inhaling all these scents and people want love to hug. people want to hug you. do people hug you when they see
1:34 am
you. i hug you. >> greta: and i love it. >> so i'm not wearing scent. so you know i'm you're not goino smell like me when i let you go. on the other hand, when they hug me, i smell like them for hours. and i cry sometimes because it's too much. >> greta: now that we talked about others, we got to talk about journalists, which at least i am and the question for you is, quasi journalism. >> no, no,. >> greta: you bring news makers. >> we do bring news makers on. but it's a very different groove. because i'm not a journalist, i can do certain things that other people like yourself in general can do. >> greta: let me read from a paragraph from your book. page 158 for reference. >> thank you. >> greta: for me i want to ask those journalists why they try to give me information that they don't actually have and call it news. and why am i accepting of that
1:35 am
as fact? people would have much less to talk about if they had to stick to the facts. and then what the hell would the tabloids do? what's up with the journalists? >> i don't know. i think because we have these -- people always say this is probably cliche now, but you have these 24 hour news cycles and you got it fill the time on tv. so sometimes, you know, something tragic will happen and it's repeated 9,000 times. >> greta: then it becomes fact. >> yeah. and then you have is here is what it was and you have in your mind, well, he obviously did this and this and this. and then like days later, you find out it wasn't that. but you've got this thing in your head now where someone will say, so and so did this, when it turns out they didn't. and you know in the old days, you couldn't get away with that. >> greta: i hate experts say. who are the experts? that's what gets me. name them. in the courtroom, we'd be required do identify yourself.
1:36 am
>> yeah. and you can't go into a courtroom and say, well, i think this happened, or this happened. someone then said, where are your facts? show me where this happened. or you can not surmise this happened. facts, i think, are good. >> greta: next, more with whoopie goldberg and finally, you hear it directly from whoopie about what everyone is talking about, the rumble with bill o'reilly on "the view." why did she get up and leave? stay tuned. then a scandal already. america's news hot politician. he says the rent is too damn high. what is his rent? stay tuned.

1:42 am
bill o'reilly. i don't want to have to fight with anybody, but, you know, if he had said all irish people are drunks, or all black people love fried chicken, it's the same thing to me. and this volatile time, you can not say the muslims killed. that's because people only hear what they want to hear. so it just -- he just -- he had gotten to me earlier and i wasn't in the mood. i wasn't in the mood. >> greta: 'cause you've taken him on before. >> yeah. i just wasn't in the mood. >> greta: how about joy? >> you have to sit down and talk to her. i don't think she was in the mood either. you know what? at some point it's like you know what? you can sit on your show and do that. you can sit on your show and make these edicts and sweeping comments, but i'm not going to sit here and listen to you do this again. so i'm going away from you. i also knew that i said a word i should not have said. >> greta: what was that? >> they bleeped it. >> greta: okay. >> but as soon as that came out of my mouth, i knew i had to get
1:43 am
up. 'cause i knew i was past reason and that wasn't good. i was just going to cuss him out and you can't do that. i wasn't capable at that moment of sitting and listening to him. >> greta: you discuss in your book respecting other people's opinions. i guess are there some line where is someone's opinion is so offensive that you should stand up to it? >> well, if something offends you to the point where you can't have a civil conversation with them, get out of the way. i know myself well enough to know that i was past the point of no return and had i stayed there, i would have probably been fired. and i do respect his opinion. but once you say, listen, you can't say this because you're painting everyone in the same -- with the same brush, and you sit and you tell me that they did that, that's like saying, you know, all black people are drug
1:44 am
addicts or drug dealers. so i couldn't do it. i knew i couldn't. >> greta: so let me get this straight. so if he had said, this person, this person, this person, this person, or this specific group over here is fine, but the thing you didn't like is he said everybody? >> yeah. because that means when you say muslims did this, are you talking about mohammed ali, 'cause mohammed ali is a muslim. you have to be careful. you have to be thoughtful and he wasn't thoughtful and he knew he wasn't thoughtful. and once he said, well, if i offended, i apologize. -- >> greta: i love the if. i always get nervous. if my husband says an if, then he's in trouble. >> but he recognized it and bill o'reilly is not one to apologize to anybody. but he knew that it was so -- that for us it was not okay. i have a lot of muslim friends and it's really hard for them and for their kids, you know.

1:46 am
people who got on that plane. >> greta: 19. but i got your point. >> crazy people. those are the guys who did it. timothy mcveigh is not all white people. so you have to be specific. you can not just lump everybody in and just -- it makes me berserk. >> greta: i take it no hard feelings? >> no. i'm going to do his show in a couple weeks. >> greta: allall right. book is great. we don't talk about sugar plumb ballerina. >> that's a kid's book. if you have children, you will like this. >> greta: you got a lot of books. this is two books. >> it's kind of wild that it all is happening at the same time, but hey, what can you do? >> we're lucky. >> yeah. >> greta: nice to see you. thank you. special note, whoopie goldberg is busy. she's in a brand-new movie. you can check it out in the theaters on november 5. next, the best of the best.
